MISSION - Fresh railroad tracks will pave the way for a Southwest Steel Coil (SSC) new $10 million, 100,000-sf metal processing facility just south of Expressway 83 near Conway Ave.

The factory to be built on a seven-acre site inside the Mission Business Park will begin to transform 50,000 pound steel coils and open by October 2015 said Ed Camden, president of Southwest Steel Coil, a subsidiary of Calstrip located in Santa Teresa, New Mexico.

“By this time next year we’ll be in full operation,” Camden said. The company expects to create at least 25-40 jobs at the facility.

A skilled machine operator position can earn up to $21 per hour with full benefits, whereas a semi-skilled crane worker can make up to $14 per hour. Salaried support positions are also expected.

SSC, located in Santa Teresa, New Mexico, processes and distributes flat-rolled steel and aluminum.

The Mission Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) authorized the sale at the end of October and has authorized $450,000 in incentives for the company.

“The project is a big deal for us,” said Alex Meade, MEDC chief executive officer. “The company is looking at investing between $16 million and $20 million.”
